us here, mr. president good to be with you again. we were together at a humerus event earlier. nice to be funny. this time not on purpose. we'll see what happens. this is obviously an area of great concern to the entire world and america in particular, which is to see a complete change in the structure and the environment in the middle east. with the arab spring came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation, an opportunity for greater participation on the part of women and public life, and in the economic life in the middle east. instead we have seen in nation after nation, a number of disturbing events. of course in syria, 30,000 civilians killed by the military there. we see in libya an attack, apparently, by i think we know now by terrorists of some kind against our people there, four people dead, our hearts and minds go to them. mali has been taken over, northern part of mali, by al qaeda-type individuals. we have in egypt a muslim brotherhood president. what we are seeing is a pretty dramatic reversal in the hopes we had for the region. and, of

i know where he stands. romney smiled real pretty but still said nothing to clue us in on his specifics on tax plan or foreign policy. this from david. darn right, conservatives are itching to get to the polls, we can't take four more years of an ineffective presidency. not enthusiastic at all. i really don't care for either candidate what we need is a strong third or maybe fourth political party so we have a real choice. i will vote for obama because in spite of his failings, i think obama cares more about the middle class. facebook.com/carolcnn. thanks for your comments and thanks for watching my show today. i am karen costello.

what do the files tell us about the accused and more importantly what it is they are accused of doing? >> well, what they're accused of doing frankly in most cases is some form of sexual molestation and abuse. sometimes physical abuse. there was an instance of a boy punched a young man extremely hard but the rest of them are just unmentionable acts of abuse, often some forms of molestation. we have some redakted parts of the files to reveal to you right now and had shown was that, you know, these are often ingenius alleged serial pedophiles going to great lengths the try to go ahead and get these victims alone with them. let me give you an example of one to show a graphic. in this particular instance there was a young scout who was going to disrobe, going to change and the scout leader also then began to disrobe and here's a quote from the files. he says, what i'm going to do to you now, if i get arrested, after i get out of jail, i'm come after you and your family. what this shows as far as the lawyers for the alleged abuser is concerned is in many instances the loaders in t

with us. it is 11:00 here on the east coast and 8:00 on the west coast. so u.s. coasters and all you late sleepers on the east coast, you are not, in fact, waking up in a time warp this morning. though you may wonder when your eyes fall on this. the u.s. jobless rate for september. that's not a typo, folks. no way, no how. 7.8%, .3% lower than the number back in august. and the lowest number since january '09. the month president obama took office. actual jobs added, less of a bombshell here, only 114,000. most of them in health care, transportation, financial services. manufacturing jobs actually took a hit last month. 16,000 of them gone in the manufacturing sector. but why would i crunch these numbers when we have the expert in the business, ali velshi, joining me live. let's leave politics out of it. let's talk numbers, facts, sheer numbers and what they s about our economy today. >> you actually put the perfect point on it. 114,000 jobs created doesn't blow the lights out. the unemployment rate dropped from 8.1% to 7.8%. it is interesting. i have long said, ashleigh, don't pay attent

are demanding answers about that attack at the u.s. consulate in libya that left the ambassador and two other americans dead. the attack defendant's exhibit happen the way the obama administration initially said it may have. this violence does not start with a span takenus protest over a now notorious saent islam film. let's get straight to some of the details now. jill dougherty joining us now from the u.s. state department. what are they expected to set straight? >> very interesting reading. some of these documents. there are statements coming out by the key people who will be testifying today. they -- i have been reading through them, and i think there were a couple of very important moments. that came essentially from the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, and in the testimony by ambassador patrick kennedy, which we expect to hear, he says that any official who was in -- was testifying at that particular time that she did, which was on the 16th five days later, the 16th of september, five days after the attack, would have said the very same thing. it was based on the information that was known
at 1:00 p.m. eastern, and sunday at 3:00 p.m. have a great weekend. >>> hello. thank you for joining us, i'm martin savidge in for fredericka whitfield. we have just identified the man accused of going on a shooting in a mall in wisconsin. police have released this photo and they're asking people who may have seen him to call the police. now he's accused of shooting at least 7 people at a spa near a busy mall near the city of brook 2350e brookfield. police say the shooting is possibly related to a domestic dispute. the victims suffered nonlife-threatening injuries and we're expecting a news skon fence underway near milwaukee soon. joining us now is hln law enforcement analyst mike brooks, mike, we know this is still considered an active investigation, the suspect is still on the loose. >> the last time we spoke, i thought the law enforcement, this is who it was. this is the subject that we thought was involved in this from the beginning. they are still at the scene, they have expanded the perimeter around this salon and spa, they just down the brookfield mall, which is a large mall, the
, those three big states were firming up nicely for obama. give us one day or two on that. we promise we'll be watching the three states for you as we move forward. on the topic of debates here, keep this in mind as well this is a big week. we have the vice presidential debate coming up this thursday. that's biden versus ryan here. a week from tomorrow, obama versus romney. and then those two again, two weeks from today, that's the final debate before the election. so mitt romney to the, he gave this 20-minute speech on foreign policy. not exactly one of romney's stronger suits thus far. take a look at yet another poll here. the question being better on foreign policy shows him trailing the president by seven points on that one specifically. wolf blitzer, let's talk to you about all of this. joining me live from washington here. and we'll listen in a moment to that speech from mitt romney at vmi. let me ask you this, why a foreign policy speech this late in the election campaign? do you think he sees some sort of opening here? >> yes, i think that the killing of the american ambassador a
secretary of state hillary clinton is saying about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, the september 11 attack left four americans dead, including the u.s. ambassador. cnn foreign affairs reporter broke the story with an exclusive interview during the secretary's trip to peru. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department, 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 post, the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. in the wake of an attack like this, in the fog of war, there's always going to be confusion, and i think it is absolutely fair to say that everyone had the same intelligence. everyone who -- >> bad intelligence, it seems. >> everyone who spoke tried to give the information as they had. as time has gone on, the information has changed. we've gotten more detail. but that's not surprising. that always happens. and what i want to avoid is some kind of political got ya or blame game going on. >> and we have just got word into the president on this as we
in 2009, which brings us to the next surprise. the obama campaign cash that was raised last month. september proved to be a lucrative month for the president's re-election campaign. democrats raised $181 million. that's a record. joining me live from washington, peter hamby. that's a whole lot of cash raised. very amazing. say many, and all in one month. how was it done? big donors, small donors, what? >> the campaign says 98% of this money came from people giving $250 or less. sptd was a very big month for democrats. polls show that the convention really brought home the democratic base and these numbers just reaffirm it. this is the biggest monthly total of this campaign. this is the money that the obama campaign and the democratic national committee have collected together. it means they're only about $50 million short of raising $1 billion for this whole campaign. so they're almost certainly going to outpace that in the next month. this is a big symbolic lift for the obama campaign after that really bad debate. they had the jobs numbers on friday and this today. it helps the c

of is romney presidential in a way that he could lead the u.s. on the world stage? we've seen an ad and a memo out today from the obama campaign trying to paint him as belacose, as not ready, and we expect president obama is going to be doing that tonight here in florida. >> one of the other big issues likely to come up tonight is iran. over the weekend i see your "times" article saying the u.s. and tehran had agreed to one-on-one talks about iran's nuclear program after the election. u.s. will deny that. a lot of people might say what's wrong -- regardless, can the president make the case that his strategy on iran is working or does this give mitt romney an opening? >> you know, the answer may be yes to both of those. obviously president obama would make his case that these are the toughest sanctions ever, and that they have been working. you just look at iran's economy. you look at the value of iran's currency, which has plummeted, and he can say the sanctions are working, but, obviously, governor romney can say they're not really shifting iran to changing its behavior. even if everyone expe
